The fox or as its known in Japan, the Kitsune holds a lot of different meaning and symbolism. In the Japanese culture the kitsune is also called the servant of Inari, A trickster, but also believed to be a kind, wise, and loving figure. Other cultures believe that the kitsune has the power to remove the evil from their world and provide protection. Some other meanings/symbols of the fox/kitsune are cunning, intelligent, adaptive, focus, and mental strength. In the Native American context, foxes are seen as master survivalists. Many cultures speak of the fox’s ability to shape-shift and adapt to any circumstance, earning it a reputation for being a revered creature of the land.
